Worst Shows On PBS Sprout


The Top Ten

1 Barney and Friends Barney and Friends Barney & Friends is an American children's television series aimed at children from ages 1 to 8, created by Sheryl Leach and produced by HIT Entertainment. It premiered on PBS on April 6, 1992. The series features the title character Barney, a purple anthropomorphic tyrannosaurus rex who conveys educational ...read more.

Barney is so stupid, he would beat everyone up and then his mother would put him in a time-out. He is so rude to everyone he just won't follow directions. He's so fat and purple and big enough to crush an adult. Barney is my 3rd least favorite show. he is just like dora and wow wow wubbzy. he should get shot by elmo. barney and friends is so boring, my brain gets tired. barney's favorite game is BEING CHASED BY LIONS! Would you get rid of this show? Hit is getting on my nerves!


Barney is so fat, he can't RUN faster than the SLOWEST animal in the world!

Don’t even get me started on this crap. This show is horrible. Also not to get me started on I Love You. I hate you, you hate me, Let’s give a big smack on Barney. With a giant sharp needle and a volcano too. No more purple dinosaur.

3 Caillou Caillou Caillou is a Canadian educational children's television series that was first shown on Télétoon and Teletoon, with its first episode airing on the former channel on September 15, 1997; the show later moved to Treehouse TV, with its final episode being shown on that channel on October 3, 2010. The ...read more.

Caillou is an embarrassment to this show, Rosie is a whining moron and everyone else is just rotten garbage! Why can a villain defeat Caillou or they can be a bully in Caillou? How can he has so many friends?!?! Does his male-pattern baldness attract bozos who don't even know life? He even has a friend who's a girl. IT'S LIKE OH MY CRUST! I would watch Sesame street than Dora and him, UGH! People who made this hideous garbage stuff, you should make better shows than about a whiny kid.

I feel really bad for Rosie being with that freak you call a big brother. Frankie Foster should beat this Whiny bratty kid up. Rosie is a bratty kid sometimes but she is like only 0-2 years old so I could understand. I do not understand the concept of Caillou because he whines yet never gets punished. What is wrong with the mom and the dad? I am surprised I loved this show when I was little because I never saw this freak whine or anything like that. I won't even trust him no more after that "Caillou Joins the Circus" episode. Now just give the mother a brownish golden belt and smack Caillou with it.

Caillou is annoying! He makes his parents nice because of his EVIL BIDDING! He will take over the world! He doesn't deserve friends, he deserves to work at a janitor at his school! If he does, best show in the house and also, he'll go to jail and he'll be beaten up by Chuck E Cheeses!

He is such a spoiled brat and his parents give him anything he wants. He's like a male toddler version of verruca salt. Like when he saw Rosie wearing his favorite shirt that he outgrew he just does this. "WAAHHH! "jeez! 😡😡😡😡😡

4 Bob the Builder Bob the Builder Bob the Builder is a British children's animated television show created by Keith Chapman. In the original series, Bob appears in a stop motion animated programme as a building contractor, specialising in masonry, along with his colleague Wendy, various neighbours and friends, and their gang of anthropomorphised ...read more.

This fat bob is so dumb. He could never win the building contest. If he made a Lego building, he would put five Lego bricks and BOOM! He made the stupidest thing ever.

Bob the builder! Can we fix it! Bob the builder! No we can't! - SheepBuggy

Bob has these trucks that sometimes cry and whine.

Used to be on Nickjr a back in the 1990s them moved it to PBS do yourself a favor and put this back on nickjr

5 Sesame Street Sesame Street Sesame Street is a long-running American children's television series, produced by Sesame Workshop and created by Joan Ganz Cooney and Lloyd Morrisett.

I'm 11 and I still like Sesame Street. Please take it off. I'm so glad they're making a new season. - EpicJake

Sesame street was great 30 years ago. Now it is nothing more than a politically correct Social Justice Warrior propaganda piece. Progressives have a way of destroying everything, no matter how good it once was.

This is a creepy show. When I was little, I watched the scariest moment ever. I won't tell you because you will be horrified! But if you ask, I will tell you - Officialpen

Oh no! I accidentally voted for this! I have been watching this show since I was a baby. You guys should make more episodes-trollsfan536

All the characters in this show are annoying! Sid is a whiny, selfish, spoiled brat who only cares about himself, Gerald is stupid, lame, pathetic, irritating kid who never shut up and the others are so obnoxious! Please cancel this show!

I thought this show was already cancelled in Australia, and a few other countries. - SheepBuggy

Sid is just annoying and bratty - cartoonfan101

Conpletely stupid! It's not science!

13 Fireman Sam

What, I love Fireman Sam! To show my support, I'll torture you by singing his song:

Original Series Lyrics:
When he hears the fire bell chime,
Fireman Sam is there on time.
Putting on his coat and hat
In less than Seven seconds flat.
He's always on the scene, Fireman Sam!
His engine's bright and clean, Fireman Sam!
You cannot ignore,
Sam is the hero next door!
Gliding down the busy streets,
Greeting people that he meets.
Someone could be in a jam
So hurry, hurry, Fireman Sam.
He's always on the scene, Fireman Sam!
And his engine's bright and clean, Fireman Sam!
You cannot ignore,
Sam is the hero next door!

2003 and 2008 Lyrics:
When he hears that fire alarm,
Sam is always cool and calm.
If you're stuck, give him a shout,
He'll be there to help you out.
So move aside make way, for Fireman Sam!
'cause he's gonna save the day, Fireman Sam.
'cause he's brave to the core,
Sam is the hero next door!
If ...more

That is disgusting. Fireman sam is okay with me but its not my favorite show of all.

It shouldn't be on this list but Its not my favorite.

What I loved fireman sam! except I hated that kid with red hair, I think his name is norman - cartoonfan101

15 Angelina Ballerina

This should be higher
The character Angelina is bossy
Miss hodgepodge acts unlikeable (although sometimes helps the little mouslings)
The main character acts so mean to her cousin
And the characters are filled up with so much annoyance
But hey at least in some episodes they don’t act like brats

16 Poppy Cat

Finally when we're sprout gonna make a great show now finally but sadly they stopped WOW thanks a lot we have the bad shows still :(

This show was actually good, it only lasted a few years and then it cancelled though. - SheepBuggy

The owl is so funny this is why I like it, that and it's a nice kiddy show.

It's an OKAY show. Not the worst or best. I liked the theme song though

17 Little People

We are talking about the new 2016 cgi one. Not the original stop motion episodes and other Little People shows. - ShopkinsLover

18 Thomas and Friends Thomas and Friends

I think the express would go much faster with Connor and Caitlin pulling it instead of Gordon doing It and it would make good time also and Gordon goes way too slow to be faster

This show was creepy back then now the trains talk and the show not so creepy anymore

I think Gordon should be fired and replaced by another engine because I don't think he knows what he's doing?

I like this show and whoever posted this is a simpleton.
